Some negotiations on the currency front are also done.
“Comments from US president and Chinese vice premier come positive. We expect move is big positive for global equities and negative for bullion. As safe-haven demand will ease after recent development. However, recent tensions in Mideast and weakness in the dollar index is slightly supportive for bullion,” Manoj Kumar Jain, Director at IndiaNivesh Commodities, told Moneycontrol.
“But, the recent development on Brexit and rebound in the pound is also negative for bullion. In this weak, Gold and Silver prices are likely to remain under pressure and Gold prices are expected to test $1450 and Silver prices could test $17 per troy ounce in the international market,” he said.
Jain further added that at MCX Gold prices are expected to test Rs 37,500-37,300, and Silver prices are expected to test Rs 44,500 again. The level of Rs 38,050 for Gold and Rs 45,700 for silver are likely to act as major resistance in the domestic market.“Sell on rise strategy will work this week for both the precious metals with SL above given resistance levels,” he said.Get access to India's fastest growing financial subscriptions service Moneycontrol Pro for as little as Rs 599 for first year.
